Slovenia’s innovation, high IT literacy and a highly skilled workforce for Luxembourg
The LSBC promotes potential of ties in innovative IT between the two countries, mostly in fintech, spacetech, analytics, big data and cybersecurity. Those who met exciting tech from Slovenia saw how Slovenia is an excellent source of research and development, innovation and high IT literacy and a highly skilled workforce, as well as exit to the SEE market.
Luxembourg already as headquarters
As a proof of LSBC concept of Luxembourg being the right market for innovative ideas in financial industries, there is Bitstamp that moved its headquarters to Luxembourg where they will launch regulated services across the EU from. After establishing by Slovenians Nejc Kodric and Damijan Merlak two years ago, Bitstamp became the first fully EU-licensed and regulated bitcoin exchange in Europe and had chosen Luxembourg thanks to its strong infrastructure and the financial and security awareness.
“Meeting with the representatives of 4 Slovenian IT companies during ICT Spring was an exciting opportunity to get a first-hand picture of the current Slovenian tech expertise. Companies are well-equipped and highly keen to foster business in domains like Big Data, Fintech, Space and general IT services. A good cooperation can be developed with Luxembourg companies in these strategic fields. Furthermore, our country plays a role as an internationally trusted center and doorway to the global market. We are confident that potential partnerships can be explored in the near future with Slovenian companies”, said François Thill, deputy director of e-commerce and information security in Luxembourg Ministry of the Economy
